why not test drive it and see for yourself??
test drove the 911 turbo and the cayenne turbo on the same day within a span of an hour...and I still believe that the cayenne was FAR better!!

try it buddy..it might fill in the gap in your life of an everyday performance + practical car!!
If he wants to go the practical+performance way, why not get an EVO 10 FQ-360?
goes like stink even with people on board.

Don't even think about removing the lower lip, it is used to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the car. Contributing to the overall stability of the car. The front end section and this lip are for centeral cooling air intake as well.

If you would've read, I asked this question earlier. He said he wouldn't get any car that didn't give good service backing, such as the EVO 10 FQ-360.

Oh! That's sad. Because that car does give some super cars a run for their money.

@eck- any updates on the run?

The problem with the Evos (especially the madder ones like the 360s, 400s etc) is that they are no longer cheap performance cars. They are quite expensive. And while there's no denying their sheer pace, the interiors let the cars down quite badly and don't feel particularly nice. Beyond a certain price point you want your car to feel nice inside apart from just being fast. That's what I feel, anyway. The ride on the hotter Evos is also brittle as glass and quite fidgety which gets very annoying after awhile, unless you have race track smooth roads to drive on all day, every day.

To be honest I'd rather sacrifice some performance for practicality, comfort & luxury, so I think I'd prefer a 335i to an Evo FQ 360.

HEY GUYS!! i dont mean to interrupt the serious discussion going on here, but im a newbie on this website and i must say ecks, WHAT A GARAGE!! ive been reading this thread for quite a while now, even before i was an actual member. its great (and rare) to see someone with such a collection of beauties in india. especially the lp640, i absolutely love it!! hopefully, one day, you will want to really see what the bull can do and fly down to the chennai racetrack and unleash that beast!!( i.e. if you dont sell her first ofcourse). if such a miracle were to happen, rest assured, I WILL BE THERE!!

ciao!!

GOOD LORD!!!
why on earth would someone want to do something so stupid!!!! this surely has to a pic edited on photoshop( please be a work of photoshop). if not, the owner deserves to be.
and PETE(people for the ethnical treatment of exotics) should have it confiscated. or better still, give it to me!!

Word . My dad has been after me to get a convertible as my next car (he apparently loves convertibles) , but me being the enthusiast and gentleman , likes only coupes . So far I don't really like any convertible sports cars (unless you count the Zonda F as a convertible!) .

@TEchno- Unbelievable. How can someone in the lord's name do such a crime!
Must be a weirdo.
@bivin- I am not sure someone can do such detailed job in a photoshop, or am i wrong?
Also the pic looks quiet authentic imo.
